From previous reviews below, you may have guessed that this is a non-frills kind of hotel. You're right: non-frills but, considering the price, it's an excellent choice. Location: superb. In the heart of buzzing Seoul, metro station and bus stop (to all places including Airport) are just outside the building. Shops, restaurants, bars, cafes are just 1 minute walk away.... More

Fantastic location - Subway station just below the building, walking distance to many tourist areas. Room basic, but comfortable. Remember to bring your own toiletries, as it is not provided (but there is a Watsons store just across the street). Main door closes at 11pm, but there is an easy access through the side gate. The reception was very kind... More

I just loved this hotel! Close to metro, in the central Seoul, surrounded by shops and cafè and close to Insadong! I had the chance to go back to Seoul and I'm going to rent a room again here.

Ok it's not the Hilton. But for its price and location it was a top hotel. I wouldn't use it to impress someone, but if your in Seoul and need a place to stay that is cheap and central this is the place. It had its own bathroom, it was cleaned everyday, it had a tv and there was free... More

Great place to stay! It's simple, but newly renovated and nice and clean. It's also in a good location, near a subway and with lots of restaurants nearby. You can book directly at the hotel by sending them an email and if you become a YMCA member in your own country you get a discount of 10%.
